  1. Henry Stimson:

    We must never forget, that under modern conditions of life, science, and technology. All war has been greatly brutalized, and that no one who joins in it, even in self-defense, can escape becoming also in a measure brutalized. Modern war cannot be limited in its destructive method and the inevitable debasement of all participants… A fair scrutiny of the last two World Wars makes clear the steady intensification of the weapons and methods employed by both, the aggressors and the victors. In order to defeat the Japanese aggression, we were forced, as Admiral Nimitz has stated, to employ a technique of unrestricted warfare, not unlike that which 25 years ago was the proximate cause of our entry into World War I. In the use of strategic air power the Allies took the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians in Germany and Japan…. We as well as our enemies have contributed to the proof that the central moral problem is war and not its methods, and that a continuance of war will in all probability end with the destruction of our civilization.

  2. Stan Shaw:

    Defacing it by taking the arms off or anything of that nature -- it's just a slap in the face for World War I veterans, i don't see how a static cross can coerce anybody into a state religion.

  3. Chuck Hagel:

    World War I was a horrific, terrible war that affected really everybody -- certainly affected us, and not to make a little bit of an effort to get to a very important ceremony was wrong. And I'm disappointed and I'm sorry that he didn't do it.

  4. Arthur Herman:

    The U.S. really emerged as a superpower at the end of World War I, president [Woodrow] Wilson gave the U.S. a moral authority it never quite lost.

  5. Peggy Noonan, special assistant and speech writer to Reagan, 1984-88:

    The battle for the mind of Ronald Reagan was like the trench warfare of World War I: never have so many fought so hard for such barren terrain.
